Description
In this intelligent and entertaining collection of essays on film, critic Richard Schickel ranges from Garbo to Fellini, Bette Davis to Satyajit Ray, Frank Capra to Clint Eastwood. He also explores such moviemaking matters as censorship, celebrity power, and famously remembered and misremembered moments of the movies.

"Matinee Idylls is vintage Schickel—film criticism as literature. The commentary is rich, generous, informative, and very smart."—Patricia Bosworth

"Schickel has an admirable compassion for younger people whose memories don't go back as far as his do, but he also has an urgent sense of how important it is to remember what we already know, and to learn what we don't."—Martin Scorsese
